1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Anne Painter on 15 Jan 2009
Format: Hardcover
I am very happy to recommend this book both as a previous corporate client of leadership development and now as an executive coach and leadership developer. It provides a much needed overview of executive coaching as a leadership and organisational development tool for both clients and coaches. I am impressed with the research and examples - the practical tools and checklists are of special value. Personally I have picked out some `golden nuggets' to enhance my own practice and enrich the interactions I have with clients before, during and after coaching engagements. Chapters I especially like are on culture, the toolbox and measuring impact. In the current challenging business environment it reinforces why executive coaching is especially needed to support and develop leaders. Congratulations to Brian Underhill and his co-authors for writing such a comprehensive resource.

Format: Hardcover
Professional sports teams feature the greatest athletes in the world - the fastest pitchers, the strongest hitters and the best ball handlers. Most of these individuals have been playing their sports since they were little kids, working hard to develop and refine their athletic skills over time. Yet, these superbly trained and exceptionally talented athletes depend on coaches to teach them to perform optimally. If sports superstars require coaches, don't corporate leaders need them also? Brian O. Underhill, Kimcee McAnally and John J. Koriath believe they do. In this book, these executive coaching experts thoroughly explain this leadership development methodology. They describe how your organization can create a solid executive coaching program to develop its leaders' expertise and professionalism. getAbstract suggests this comprehensive, detailed book to human resources and leadership development professionals, as well as to managers who want to enhance their up-and-coming executives' leadership capacities.

A Standard Text for Executive Coaching 9 April 2008
By E. Britton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Executive Coaching for Results: The Definitive Guide to Developing Organizational Leaders

This book must already be considered a foundation text for executive coaching's role and practice. The field is defined and framed in the context of the business world and related professional services. Despite its scholarly underpinnings, the book is eminently accessible to any reader and provides immediately useful and practical guidance to the coach, coachee, coaching organization and client company.

The roles of corporate culture, leadership support for coaching, and the more traditional human resource functions in the coaching initiative are explored. `How to' sections on organizing, managing, conducting and evaluating coaching projects provide state-of-the-art standards of practice. The book looks at strategies to develop the coaching profession and ends with a futuristic look at what may lie ahead for the profession.

Every serious practitioner will make a thorough study of this publication.

As an Executive Coach, I found this book essential to ... 11 Feb 2008
By Ted Middelberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As an executive coach, I found this book essential to understanding the dynamic environment in which today's customers define supplier value.

The power of this book is its organizational focus, looking at executive coaching as a logical extension to leadership development. In my research on evaluating the impact of leadership programs, one of the critical elements that differentiate successful from less than successful programs is the leader's ability to apply the concepts in a supportive and feedback rich environment - such as coaching provides. Executive Coaching for Results provides a contemporary overview of the state of executive coaching in a way that enables organizational action on integrating coaching into current leadership development offerings.

So good, I didn't want to draw attention to it 23 Sep 2010
By Steve Kovich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The book is a real gem for anyone with an interest in this area. Honestly, I thought it was so good I didn't want to draw other people's attention to it. The book is excellent not only for coaches and OD practitioners but for true leaders as well. I am a former sr. leader of a Fortune 100 company with firsthand experiences dealing with industry best practices and world class performance grading. This book is the "best practice" guide to executive coaching. I cannot believe I paid just a book cover price for the amount of data and insights that I received.

I give Brian Underhill a tremendous amount of credit for sharing his knowledge. It's a testament to his excellence and genuineness as a coach. Most great coaches I have known (corporate & athletics) put developing others, the team, and the entire community ahead of themselves. In my opinion, Brian places himself into that echelon with this book. I especially liked how the three different perspectives (coaches, leaders, and organizations) were presented throughout the book. Additional thanks to co-authors Kimcee Mc Anally and John J. Koriath.
